Tap at Wilmington location, called Old Tom. Cloudy orange color. Aroma was very slanted towards fruit (dates, candied apricots, pears),. Was sweet with some toffee and brown sugar. A little bit of tang in the texture. Not a lot of hop character,. Really liked the taste.. markwise (5441) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - MAR 28, 2009
Thanks IBrew2or3 for the share. Pours brown with a tan head. Nose is malt, caramel, grapes, sugar, floral hops, citrus hops, apricot, toffee, and some bitterness. Flavor is much the same- malt, citrus, apricot, and sweetness. Medium mouthfeel to this hoppy and likeable BW.
